Moroni gives us the sacramental prayers–the bread in this chapter. Do we understand and use this precious covenant with God to draw closer to Him, through His Son Jesus Christ? How could we do better?
Moroni writes down words that Christ gave His apostles during the time He visited the Nephites right after His Resurrection. These words should motivate us not to take the gift of the Holy Ghost for granted in our lives.
